million dollars from philanthropy to fix the park problem, you really should but it's not something you can do in two weeks with an rfq. it's a lot of work and i would suggest you will get a very suboptimum report if you take what you get on the 23rd of this mother and sign it off in june and i know you need the money but i appeal to you that these two areas are in great need of a lot more thinking than has gone into it. thank you very much. >> are you by any chance on the citizens advisory committee? >> i am not. >> okay. >> i am not for a reason, one, it's hard for me to get o the meetings but secondly, the work i'm doing, you'll see the -- there's a group of us that are start tog do this for the transit center is to take the whole thing into account. we're interested in the 7 buildings, the transit center, the total package and the
1:01 pm
citizen advisory committee is basically only responsible for the transit center, it also has an agenda and it's also very large. thanks. >> that concludes members of the public. i wanted to address you under that item, we'll go ahead and move under the consent calendar. all matters are considered to be reteen, will be no separate discussion of the items unless the board or the public requests, the item would be removed from the consent calendar. i have not received any indication that a member of the public or the board wants any items severed, 8.1, approving the minutes of the march 12th meeting and 8.2, authorizing the executive director to amend the professional services agreement for community benefit district formation assistance services with mjm management group. >> we have a motion and a second, without objection, it passes unanimously, or do you want to take the roll.
1:02 pm
>> ewe unanimously, none opposed. >> item number 89 is approving an amendment to the contract number 08-04-cmgc-000 authorizing webcor/obayashi joint venture to execute a trade work subcontract with pacific erectors inc. as the responsible bidder submitting the lowest responsive bid in the amount of 19 million 553 thousand for tg08.4, metal panels thereby increasing authorized direct costs by 19 million 553 thousand and the authorized construction services fixed fee by 1 million 486 thousand 28 dollars. >> do we need a presentation on this. >> you're up, mark. >> we received -- we had four prequalified bidders, we received three bids ranging
1:03 pm
between 19.455 and 28 million dollars, [inaudible] in this amount of 19.55 million dollars, pacific erectors bid was [inaudible] but 5.4 million dollars above our budget of 14 million dollars, and we're commending to award it to pacific erectors for the point of [inaudible] and fund the balance from the reserves. >> this isn't the skin, right? >> no. >> this is other panels. >> these are panels and closures around the staircases, the elevators and escalator areas, i tried to put some photos in there. >> okay. motion? second? >> i'll second. >> without objection.
1:04 pm
okay, it pass passes unanimous. >> no matters of the public wishing to address you, now it passes unanimously. er >> moving on to item 10, approving an amendment to contract number 08-04-cmgc-000, authorizing webcor/obayashi joint venture to execute a trade work subcontract with olson and company steel, the sole responsive bidder for noshed amount 10 million 323 thousand $242 miscellaneous metals thereby increasing authorized direct toss by 10 million 323 thousand 242 dollars. >> so, as we open bids for it in january, we received only one bid and the board
1:05 pm
authorized the executive director to negotiate with the sole bid which was olson, [inaudible] our budget was approximately 7.9 million dollars. we entered into negotiations and we discussed several items that we discussed with olson regarding there's any valuable engineering opportunities or cost reduction opportunities and we identified approximately 1.2 million dollars in value engineering and cost reduction. this is the five item that is we discussed and we agreed upon. the first two items are rail, handrails on the park for a total amount of 740 thousand dollars. these items should not have been bid by olson, they're part of the landscaping contract that's already issued to bid. in discussions with olson, olson realized it was not part of their scope, so we asked
1:06 pm
olson to hold the price for 6 months and we're going the exclude this from the bid price. we will open the landscaping and compare the prices and if the landscaping is high e we will come back, if not, we will use the landscaping, but just to make sure. the third item listed here is we have security fence screening in the rooms to secure the servers and the computer systems, olson suggested a standard fencing design versus what we have speck as a custom design so, that will be a valued engineer item of a savings of 230 thousand dollars. the fourth item is again column protection covers, aluminum checkered plate come lumps in the back of the house, we expect custom aluminum covers, there will be a savings of 115
1:07 pm
thousand dollars. the fifth item is a detail that we have for steel plate detailed attaching the waterproofing, in discussion of olson, olson suggested this detail could be much simpler if it was part of the waterproof lg, the design team reviewed it and said they could do it much simpler as part of the waterproofing, that's a savings of 120 thousand for this particular trade package, it would cost probably 20 thousand in the waert proofing addition, so we're recommending to award the package to olson for 10 million 323 thousand dollars. >> how many firms were prequalified for this work? >> we had five prequalified bidders, we've contacted all of them and they basically informed us they were very busy
1:08 pm
and they couldn't bid for the project. >> so i have just a question on -- i'm glad it seems like you're sensitive to it on these top two items with respect to the rooftop park. there is -- still if we can find out when it goes to the alternate trade package, they could still be built out, right? is that what you're saying here? >> yeah, we have them listed in the landscaping package as above the deduct alternates, when we open the bids, we would see what they bid, if they bid lower than olson bid, we would exercise that option, if not, we will reject that and olson would buy the two items from olson for that total. >> the rooftop park is
1:09 pm
essentially a community amenity, so i think the board's particularly sensitive to value engineering there and making sure we can preserve the possibility of doing it as planned as long as possible. >> yeah, so these two elements will be part of the transit center, it's a matter or of what trade package would be bought from it, that's the issue. >> and you see that going out within the next six months? >> the rooftop park has been advertised already, and we -- the current bid opening is june 30th. we're doing our best in order to communicate and attract bidders for it, we have four prequalified bidders and cm/gc is engaged with them, so we're hoping to get a healthy pool of bidders and we're trying our best for that. >> and the scope for that is the whole park? >> the scope for that would be the landscaping, the hard escaping for the park, the electrical and the mechanical elements nr the park are being negotiated with the current
1:10 pm
bidders to see if we can get a fair and reasonable price with them as a change order, if that doesn't happen, we will bid them out separately. the entire scope of the park is being negotiated either with existing bidders or the landscape contract has been advertised. >> so, i understand -- i thought that you had taken those elements out of those existing mep contracts deliberately? >> yes. >> so, now after taking them out, now you're negotiating with the winning bidders to see what kind of price they would give? it's less likely to get us a competitive price? >> if we don't get a fair and reasonable price, we will bid them out separately. because of the budgetary purposes, we couldn't award it as part of the mechanical piece. >> we didn't have those elements as alternates in the
1:11 pm
bidding process. >> no. >> how will the timing work if you're not able to get a reasonable price in terms of the timeline for initiating a new bid process. . er we expect to get the prices at the end of this month, early next month for the mep's, the mep's were awarded late last year, we've been nesting the scope with them, making sure they understand what the scope is, we expect to get prices end of this month, early next month. if that doesn't work, we can turn around and bid them out in the august timeframe, we're hoping to come to a conclusion with the existing bidders. it's a matter of we won't be able to execute the change orders until after the budget has been updated. >> what time of exclusion does that caoe -- create >> the total cost of the park, our estimate is 38 million
1:12 pm
dollars. the estimate for the landscaping package that's currently being advertised is 24.5 million dollars. so, there's about -- i want to say 5 million dollars, there's probably more than that that we're negotiating with them, but i don't want to tell them how much we want to pay for it. >> is there a motion for approval? >> move approval. >> we have a motion and a second. is there any objection to the motion? seeing none, it passes unanimously. >> and we'll note for the record that no members of the public want to comment on this item. item 1 is authorizing the executive director to execute an amendment to the office lease for 9685 square feet of office space to 201 mission street in san francisco for a term of five years and four
1:13 pm
months with ca mission street limited parlt ner ship. >> and sarah is here to give a brief report and answer any questions. >> good morning, sarah jelati, i can answer any questions that you have on the staff report and our broker tony from dtz is here if you have any specific questions that i can't answer. >> first i appreciate the shrinking of the footprint, i know that's not always easy to do, i appreciate you keeping the cost down by doing so. my question is how you arrived at five years as a desired extension. >> i'll probably have tony come up and speak to what typical terms are. we were asking for three years and our understanding
1:14 pm
1:15 pm
1:16 pm
[inaudible]. >> five years from now, three years from now, i don't know if that will be the case because
1:17 pm
there's a lot of space coming online, so it may not be as easy as we think, all we can do is hope it sounds like, if the landlord's insistent, then we have to do five years. >> and why wasn't -- did we -- who -- did you do the original brokerage or was it then cassidy and turly, they did the original one. >> correct. >> so, did we have the opportunity to lease longer initially than we did? the project was never intended to be online this early, so i was wondering what our thinking was, not to get a longer lease from the beginning? >> if you recall, phase 1 was originally before we added the train box would have been done by now, 2014, so the original lease was 2003 and it was an 8 year lease i believe and we
1:18 pm
negotiated the extension early because we needed larger space, we had more people sitting in one office at one point, so in 2008, we negotiated through 2015, that was prior to adding the train box to phase 1. the transit center would have been completed in 2014. >> did we ever officially say we were not going to build a train box out rkts i thought it was contemplated we wouldn't build the train box in phase 1, but not officially say we don't intend to. >> it contemplated the top down method, the transit section was going to be built on mound dashing only and there was not going to be any exka*f yeasting of train box on 2. >> and we officially adopted that? >> yes. >> okay, well, then it would make sense. >> is there a motion for approval? >> [inaudible]. >> motion for approval. >> alright.
1:19 pm
any comments? >> no members of the public wanting to address you on that item. >> okay, any objection to the motion? okay. motion passes unanimously. >> thank you, item 11 si is approved: moving on to item 12 is approving the recommended applicant tos the transbay joint powers authority citizens advisory committee. >> [inaudible] on this item. >> good morning, directors, our cac was formed back in 2007 and we set it up with 15 different seats and each of those seat iss designated to represent a specified constituency, we'll get a different view nr the transbay program, we have members with two year terms and their terms are staggered such that each year either 7 or 8 seats are up, so this year, we have 7 seats that are up, we also had three members who were not able to complete the sek
